Tragedy Ask Dr G
Written by Doctor G

In which I’m talking about the tragedy in Texas – in a way that *might* be helpful


How’s your heart? Mine is heavy with sadness, sparking with anger, and a little more dull than I’d like.

I talk all the time (you know, you know) about resilience – how to navigate change and come through it the kind of person you want to be. So this morning, after another preventable tragedy that has ended the lives of children and adults who’ve dedicated their lives to children, I have only one question:

What kind of person do I want – need – to be?

As soon as I ask myself about choices, the anger and the sadness and the frustration fall from a 10 out of 10 to a 5 or a 6. I can think – and I do think – of the choices I have.

Just as we did with horrifying pandemic news, bad news from the doctor, that time we got turned down for a job, the relationship that fell apart, we have to ask ourselves what choices are there, and what kind of person do I want to be in this moment. 

For me, I want to act. And so I will. I started by creating this short video to encourage others. And now I’m going to take the actions I believe will make children and youth serving adults safer.

What choices do you have? 

If you’re wondering how to talk to kids in your life about this, I spoke about that this morning on some news programs. Here’s one with a step-by-step guide. And if you’d like some more in depth support, my course Talking to Kids about Tough Topics is now free. Just grab it.

All my best, 

Dr. G
